5. Kendall Jenner
This year, Kendall made her acting debut on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 and walked the runway for the second year in a row at New York Fashion Week for Sherri Hill. Kendall also graced quite a few magazine covers including Miss Vogue, Seventeen and Girlfriend.

4. Ashley Tisdale
2012 brought Ashley a few new television roles — on Fox’s Raising Hope and in a CBS pilot, which unfortunately didn’t get picked up. Ashley also reunited with boyfriend Scott Speer before ending their relationship again later in the year, but not before she modeled with Sarah Hyland for Op and filmed Scary Movie 5.

3. Vanessa Hudgens
Outside of her yoga classes, Vanessa took on two gritty roles in Frozen Ground and Spring Breakers (she even took Spring Breakers overseas). And after getting Punkd by Lucy Hale, Vanessa was honored at the 2012 Power of Youth. We can’t forget the magazines she covered too — Untitled, Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and Glow.

2. Miley Cyrus
It was the year of the engagement and the haircut for Miley. First came the exciting news back in June that she was engaged to her beau Liam Hemsworth. Then later in the summer, Miley let her hairdresser chop off all her pretty locks to make way for an edgier blonde look. Miley also hit the studio, working on her new album expected to debut in 2013. Can’t wait!

1. Selena Gomez
Taking the top spot and dethroning Vanessa Hudgens, Selena is our #1 Actress! The 20-year-old multifaceted entertainer became Glamour mag’s Woman of the Year, took over for Miley Cyrus in Hotel Transylvania, debuted her first perfume, released a music video for “Hit The Lights”, launched a nail collection, came back for more Wizards, and kissed Nat Wolff for an upcoming flick. And let’s not forget about her breakup and makeup with boyfriend musician Justin Bieber.
